"Meaning is the best misdirection." From Kenton, always liked that one.

I always attribute this to Bob Cassidy, but it probably goes further back:

"Mentalism is magic's dark twin and sinister things lurk in the shadows. We can never fear that darkness because the denizens of those shadows spawned our craft. We must accept we are sired from shadowy legacy, embrace that fact and -- what the he** CELEBRATE IT." (John Riggs)

"With magic, the performer employs misdirection, directing the attention of his spectators away from the operation of the mystery while his hands or mechanical contrivances operate. With the mentalist, it is MIS-Belief. He must cause his audiences to believe something other than that which actually occurs or instill that reasonable question of doubt." (Robert Nelson)

"Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit." (EE Cummings)

"The hand is the visible part of the brain." (Immanuel Kant)

"The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls." (Paul Simon)

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science." (Albert Einstein)

"You have to believe you are a REAL mentalist. I am not talking here about believing in yourself while you are performing. I am talking about believing in yourself when you are just walking around talking to people in normal life." (Richard Osterlind)

"T'was in another lifetime, one of toil and blood when blackness was a virtue and the road was full of mud. I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form. 'Come in," she said. 'I'll give you...shelter from the storm.'" (Bob Dylan)

I love these things.

Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Except bears. Bears will kill you.
